Recently at our All Staff Meeting, Mike Bickle shared a very timely message titled “The End Time Conflict Against Jesus Leadership” based out of Psalm 2. This message was centered around the conflict that’s both emerging now and will continue to emerge in the days (weeks, months and years) to come. This conflict isn’t aimed against religion in general or people specifically, but directly at Jesus Christ and His leadership over the nations.
God’s end-time purpose includes a hostile takeover as Jesus exerts His rightful authority over the nations (Psalm 2:7-8) and lays claim to that which the Father has already given Him. But leading up to that specific time which the prophets called, The Restoration Of All Things (Acts 3:21), the nations will rage, openly against this Man and those that love Him.
The heat of this conflict is only being felt in an introductory way today, but where it’s going will far-surpass our wildest imagination. Sinful humanity will plot and scheme, creating a grand but futile drama in attempt to overthrow Jesus’ leadership and authority.
Here are some quotes from Mike’s message;
“The only liberty that exists is liberty in Christ under the authority of the Word of God.”
“The rage of the nations Jesus said would come to the core of our lives, which primarily includes our families.”
“The uncreated God of Revelation 4, isn’t moved by the greatest of armies that sinful nations muster.”
“What Christian’s call freedom/safe boundaries (the Word of God) the nations will call bonds/fetters that they want to be free from.”
